Blaming the authorities for evacuating a handful of foreigners first is simply ridiculous.
The Mayor of New Orleans has a responsibility to all within his city, not just the residents. Foreign tourists are, as someone said already here,
easily evacuated. They just need to get to the nearest aiport and they're one step from home. Residents with no homes to get to need facilities in
place to send them to.
I'm the first person to criticize the handling of the evacuation (or lack thereof), but this tiny incident in the middle of the whole mess is really
insignificant and not unwarranted.
